TUNKHANNOCK — Students of the Whipple Performing Arts Studio will present their annual spring recital at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, May 7 at the Tunkhannock Area High School.

“The Golden Spike” was the ceremonial final spike driven by Leland Stanford to join the rails of the First Continental Railroad across the United States at Promontory Summit, Utah Territory. Students will take on the roles of 1800s Eastern and Western fictional characters. They range in age from three to adult and will delight audiences with their talents in tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, Irish, belly dance, hip hop, praise and worship and Victorian ballroom.

Natalie Markovitz, a 2016 graduating senior from Tunkhannock Area High School, has the starring role as Eliza Stanford. She is the daughter of American tycoon and industrialist Leland Stanford and longs to leave the confines of Eastern society and find herself a handsome cowboy to marry.

Pre-sale tickets are $10 for general admission when purchased in advance at the Whipple Performing Arts Studio or by calling 570-836-6986. They can also be purchased at the door for $12. Admission is free for children under 5 years of age.
